- Written by Horatio Ross
The Captain of the Scottish Team for many years was veteran rifleman Horatio Ross. His letters encouraging Scotsmen desirous of "becoming a first-class shot" were published in the press. That of 11 April 1864 gave hints "intended more for young men who have not as yet taken part in public competitions than for our old and experienced riflemen." This advice is still relevant today and worthy of study by the long range rifleman.
